Pretty Serious Rainy Days Collection

It’s Mani Monday! How was your weekend? Mine was great! Busy, but relaxing also. Today I’m sharing the gorgeous Rainy Days Collection by Pretty Serious Cosmetics.

I haven’t been this excited about a set of all cremes in a while. Pretty Serious makes amazing creme formulas. Remember the Pastel Pet Names Collection? That is still one of my favorite collections to this day. It’s stunning. Let’s take a look at these beauties.

 

MISTY

This is a muddy tiffany blue. It applies so well! Nice and smooth formula. Opaque in 2 easy coats. On my skin tone, this appears more dusty and muddy but on fair skin tones this might appear lighter.

CLOUDBURST

This is a dusty aqua/teal. ONE COAT WONDER!!! Amazing formula. Buttery, smooth and opaque in 1 coat. If you tend to do thinner coats then you might need 2 but I got away with just 1.

What is a Cloudburst? I wondered. Well, have you ever driven into something that looks like the world is about to end? LOL I have! Well, that’s what a cloudburst is! It’s an extreme amount of precipitation in a short period of time, sometimes accompanied by hail and thunder. Cool! Now you know if you didn’t know 🙂

 

I also wanted to show you guys the difference between Misty and Cloudburst because when I first received them I thought they looked similar in the bottle, but they are quite different. So if you’re wondering which one to get, get them both! Misty is lighter than Cloudburst and they are both gorgeous!!

PRECIPITATION

This is a deep pigmented dark teal. WOW!!! Stunning! Another amazing incredible ONE coater!!! Again, if you do thin coats, then  you might have to do 2 coats.

This one did not stain on me, but then again I don’t really stain easily with polish. This baby was really hard to photograph so I had to color correct which is why my skin color looks a bit off. I got as close as I could to the actual real life color.

PETRICHOR

This is a muted deep royal blue with grey undertones. Love!! Great formula. Opaque in 2 coats.

What is a Petrichor? It’s the pleasant smell that accompanies the first rain after a long period of warm, dry weather.

OVERCAST

This is a cloud concrete grey. Delicious!! I love my greys. This one is no exception. Buttery and smooth. This is 2 coats.

PLUVIOPHILE

This is a mauve/taupe. Fantastic formula of course! Easy peasy 2 coats.

What on earth is a Pluviophile? It is a lover or rain! Someone who finds joy & peace of mind during rainy days.

I know the perfect person to describe as a Pluviophile… MY SISTER!!! She loves rainy days and is so happy when it’s a cloudy rainy day. Check out here Rainy Sunday post here.

Pretty Serious Cosmetics is an Indie from none other than Australia. I feel like practially all polish that comes from Australia is a hit, ie… piCture pOlish, Ice Scream Nails, Glam Polish… and so many more. Pretty Serious is 3 FREE, Formaldehyde free, cruelty free and vegan friendly. Their logo reminds me of the TV show Bewitched! I loved that show, so this is an easy fave for me. I love Pretty Serious’ motto of creating fun, yet elegant polish. They also never follow trends or seasons because while it may be Winter in the US, it’s actually Summer in Australia!!

It was so hard picking a favorite but I think Precipitation stood out from the rest. Although I really loved them all. Which one was your favorite?
